LCFB Vice President, Matt Marston named to MFB Leadership Class
Livingston County Farm Bureau Vice President, Matt Marston, was selected from amongst 90 nominations from county Farm Bureaus across Michigan to participate in the 2020-21 ProFILE Leadership class. Marston and the other 17 participants will begin ProFILE's 15-month agenda of leadership and professional development activities, including expert speakers, involvement opportunities and visits to ag-industry sites in Michigan and nearby states. ProFILE gets underway in January 2020 with orientation at the Michigan Farm Bureau (MFB) home office in Lansing and a visit to Carhartt's headquarters in Dearborn.
Meetings in February and March will include participation in MFB's Washington Legislative Seminar. The busy summertime offers an optional picnic outing before the schedule ramps back up again in September and a flurry of activity the following winter.
In January 2021 participants will embark on a five-day multistate bus trip, then take part in MFB's Lansing Legislative Seminar the following month before the program concludes with a graduation ceremony in March 2021.
Established in 1990, ProFILE is an intensive leadership development course for the best and brightest young Farm Bureau members ages 25-35. Prospective participants are first nominated by their county Farm Bureau then selected by a MFB staff panel based on the strength of their applications.
